King Cites Concerns About Kavanaugh Nomination

King Cites Concerns About Kavanaugh Nomination”

President Trump has picked Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for Supreme Court justice. "Now do I think he will be a bad jurist on the Supreme Court?"

"It sounds like he's living on what he earns", said former Federal Election Commission lawyer Larry Noble, quoted by Bloomberg.

The mistake played into concerns among conservatives that Democrats planned to blindly oppose anyone Trump might choose to nominate.

Mr. Schumer has also identified abortion rights as a key issue in the political battle over President Trump's nomination of Mr. Kavanaugh.

That's all the support Kavanaugh needs to be confirmed. Schumer, demands unity: a "no" vote on Kavanaugh.

GOP officials have told CNN they are targeting a confirmation hearing in late August - an aggressive timeline, but one that would set up a mid-September vote. The majority for the Republicans in the Senate is razor thin and so every vote will matter dearly to each side.

But that may be a tall order. He worked in the White House during George W. Bush's presidency and was an aide to Kenneth Starr during the investigation of President Bill Clinton, according to the Associated Press.

Kavanaugh, just 53, could serve on the high court for decades.

On Tuesday, Fallon criticized Sen. Jon Kyl. He also met with Sen.

Kavanaugh's financial disclosures also showed he had two assets worth up to $65,000 in 2017, far less than current members of the Supreme Court.

"Here is the tough decision those red state Democrats have to make", Schoen said in an opinion column for Fox News.

"This is like comparing apples to oranges", Grassley said. The Republicans pick up seats, increase their majority? With ailing Republican John McCain unable to vote, they have little wiggle room.

"A number of our Democratic colleagues could not even wait until the president's announcement last night before launching attacks on his nominee", Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said on the Senate floor Tuesday.

Speaking to Al Jazeera, Nihad Awad, the national executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said that the Senate must grill Kavanaugh on his views on civil rights and presidential powers. During confirmation to a lower court, he promised to be deferential to the precedent.

Springer said several months remain in the Cramer-Heitkamp race, with enough time for an October surprise and other issues that could come up later and in the candidates' scheduled debates.

Democrats are targeting moderate Republican Sens.

As soon as it was announced Kennedy would retire, Liberal groups were gearing up to protect Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court case that upheld abortion rights, from being overturned. The two have supported access to abortion services, and activists have already begun sending wire coat hangers, as a symbol of an era when abortion was illegal, to Collins' office.

"I think it will be a very noisy confirmation process", he said.

The president of Family Research Council argues that what may be the most persuasive thing about Kavanaugh is the confidence that conservatives have in the man who nominated him. Other senators on this list declined that invite. "Like Trump's first nominee a year ago, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of" Obamacare". He called Kavanaugh "one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time".
